p1316 stands for Injector Circuit/IDM Codes Detected - My first guess would be that one of your under valve cover harness plugs came loose. Start it up and CAREFULLY feel each exhaust manifold for heat. If one of them is cold - you've isolated which side it is. If that is your problem, you can either buy a new harness with upgraded clips or buy the little black plastic clips from Ford to fortify the harness attachment.

Do a buzz test, it will tell you which side is disconnected.

OR just pull both valve covers and install the ford clips in them and you won't have to worry about this again.

It's your UVCH coming apart.

I can do it for 50 cents if you give me two quarters and a bench grinder.
